Quotes from the news wire:
There is some discontent between factions in the camps, and the weather is brutal, people are trying to sleep in cars, and carbon monoxide poisoning is a concern. There are over 100 vehicles in snow banks crashed on the side of the road. People are trying to leave but don’t know where to go. Visibility is about 50 feet. If you aren’t ready for this environment, you will die.
You can still do security and you can be nice. But when they start throwing stones and rolling propane bombs at you, it is not being nice anymore, we are outnumbered thousands to one. The law enforcement is outnumbered hundreds to one. It is a small law enforcement [presence] here and they are tapped out, these protesters are taking away other officers from their community. The locals are tired, their livestock is missing. This has been going on for months.
